Classes offered this Spring include:

An Introduction to Interlocking Justice by AnaYelsi Velasco-Sanchez, En Conjunto founder, Independent Consultant, Educator, Writer, and Artist

No place is immune to recreating what we as a society have spent years internalizing. Those of us in movement spaces (organizers, healers, artists, activists, prophets, teachers and more) can call ourselves liberal, progressive, radical, or woke with all the breath in our bodies but, without constant intentionality, we will continue to enforce the very things we seek to reform and dismantle. This course addresses the question, “What would it look like to approach justice in a way that does not recreate toxic models, prioritizes healing and wholeness, and values the connected nature between all parts of ourselves; between individuals, and between communities and movements?

Building the Beloved Community: Organizing for Social Change by Kristin Kumpf, Director of Human Migration and Mobility for American Friends Service Committee

As communities here in D.C., across the U.S., and around the world experience increased injustice and oppression, what can people of faith and conscience do to respond? Join this interactive class to learn about impactful social movements, how to build the Beloved Community, and the organizing skills needed to make concrete, social change happen in our communities and the world.

Making the Road by Walking: A Journey towards (Dis)Connection by Daniel Dixon & Matthias Everhope

Based on the belief that decolonization is a necessary process for a meaningful future, this course will introduce various concepts of colonization, decolonization, and solidarity with Indigenous peoples. Using the framework of ‘moves towards connection’ we’ll explore how decolonization facilitates a move towards deeper connection with ourselves, creation, God, and others.
